41. Pardon The Interruption (ESPN)
So a bald black guy and a bald Jewish guy walk onto a TV soundstage, and...talk about sports and other shit for 30 minutes every day (sorry Rush, no jokes here!). In the decade when sports talk went from being merely mind-numbingly ubiquitous to being let's-stop-having-sex-so-we-don't-propagate-the-species-and-keep-this-bullshit-up prevalent, Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser were talking heads we could actually watch. Well, them and Peter North's My Junk Can Speak! Vol. 3 (Vol. 1 and 2,not so much).
YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
In 2006, PTI (along with the show that precedes it, Around the Horn) averaged better ratings than ESPN's signature show, SportsCenter.
